👀💭 According to recent research, there is evidence of a 4th #Pyramid which was said to be dismantled in 1759, & it took 10 months. This pyramid would have been different from the others, around 100 ft smaller than the others and apparently had a cube on top. #Archaeology #Giza
👀💭 P1: A 4th great #Pyramid of #Giza in the 1700's was documented & sketched along with the 3 that we know about today by a Danish naval captain. It may now finally have been found by a space outside the #Menkaure enclosure. #Archeology #lost4thpyramid #Egyptology #Egypt
👀💭 P2: This so called tomb is located on the #Giza Plateau, which is believed by some #Egyptologists to be a 4th #Pyramid of Giza. It was identified as a pyramid by John Shae Perring & Colonel Howard Vyse who visited the site in 1837–1838. #Archaeology #Megalithic #Ancient

#Assad's regime, its supporters & a plethora of uninformed commentators are driving a call for punitive sanctions on the regime to be removed to facilitate aid delivery to #Syria.

This is absolute nonsense.

It has no basis in facts.

It's nothing but a regime talking point.
Let’s start with some facts:

- 90% of the multi-billion dollar aid effort that goes through #Damascus comes from the U.S, U.K, E.U. & #Canada -- who also happen to be the x4 sanctioning entities.

In all cases, humanitarian waivers are in place to ensure the free flow of aid.
The West has consistently funded & backed the free-flow of aid across all of #Syria & its *our* money that's paid for it.

It’s #Assad's regime that has systematically weaponized aid since 2011 -- diverting it away from opposition communities as part of its siege & starve agenda.

How ISLAMIZATION occurs when
there are sufficient MUSLIMS in a country.... #Thread

When culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable'
Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under
the table. Here's how it works...👇🏻👇🏻
📍 As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will
be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone.

(#UnitedStates --1.0%; #Australia --1.5%; #Canada --1.9%; #China --1%-2%; #Italy --1.5%;
#Norway --1.8%)
📍 At 2% and 3% Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected
groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

(#Denmark --2%;
#Germany --3.7%; #UnitedKingdom --2.7%; #Spain --4%; #Thailand --4.6%)

The admin of Bab al-Hawa crossing -- the sole route open for UN aid to NW #Syria -- confirms that 3 days in, zero aid has arrived from the international community.

#Assad's regime is getting aid from the @UN + #Russia, #Egypt, #Algeria, #UAE, #Saudi, #Tunisia, #Iraq & #Iran. Image
@UN In NW #Syria, financial donations are coming in from abroad, but nothing in terms of real-world assistance.

They need manpower, fuel, equipment, food, shelter etc.

#Egypt managed to get a team of rescue specialists in to aid @SyriaCivilDefe, but it's unclear how they got there. Image
@UN @SyriaCivilDefe The earthquake + @UN inaction/risk aversion has achieved what #Assad's regime never managed:

-- NW #Syria is now fully under siege; from the south (regime areas) & the north (via disaster-hit #Turkey).

Only concerted international action will see this siege ended.

👀💭 The builders of the great #Pyramid of #Giza knew something that we still don't. We remain perplexed by the complexity & precision of it. It’s engineered & constructed with designs of intricacy & functional in nature with unparalleled still in these modern times.
#Archaeology Image
👀💭 P1: #Pyramid power refers to the theory that the ancient #Egyptian pyramids & objects of similar shape can confer a variety of benefits. There is a substantial amount of evidence to suggest that in fact is the main purpose of the construction of the pyramids. #Archaeology Image

Feb. 6 is International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting.

In #Egypt, my country of birth, 87% of girls and women aged 15-49 years have undergone FGM/C. #EndFGM #ZeroToleranceToFGM
With a population of 100 million, that horrific percentage means that Egypt has the greatest number of women and girls who have experienced FGM/C of any country in the world.

#EndFGM #ZeroToleranceToFGM
We hack away at perfectly healthy parts of our girls’ genitals because we’re obsessed with female virginity and because women’s sexuality is a taboo.

Northwestern #Syria#Idlib & #Aleppo in particular — have suffered 12yrs of brutal conflict. More than 65% of the basic infrastructure of the area is destroyed or heavily damaged.

Tonight’s earthquake couldn’t have hit a more vulnerable region.

An absolute disaster.
Utterly horrific reports coming from all across NW #Syria - every town I’ve heard from has dozens of buildings flattened. People stuck under the rubble.

Any many, many casualties — including children.

@SyriaCivilDefe will be heroes tonight, working amid heavy rain & sleet.
I’ve heard from x3 hospitals in #Idlib & N. #Aleppo — all are full, every bed taken by emergency cases following tonight’s earthquake.

As rescuers & civilians seek to extract people & belongings from rubble, there’s mass panic about aftershocks.

@SyriaCivilDefe stretched thin.

#earthquake with epicenter reportedly in #Turkey was felt throughout the region. Many people i know woke up to the shake. Some went into streets. #lebanon #jordan #Syria
This is strongest #earthquake I felt since #egypt’s 1992 destructive one. In #beirut, waking up in middle of night to shaking building brought back terrifying memories of #aug4 #beirutblast in 2020. Where to hide?
This time, I am in a new building with 2 four-legged dependents and no @leenasaidi to pull me out of house. It took a few minutes to regain composure. Still contemplating what to do with drake and smudge

1_ Since the end of #WorldWar 2, the stockpiling of nuclear weapons has proliferated worldwide; many countries now have the capacity to destroy all life on Earth many times over;
2- and while World War 3 fears ignite across the globe after #Taliban fighters take over the capital of #Afghanistan, many #Christians are wondering what the #Bible says about World War 3. So, what does the Bible say? Will there be another world war?
3_ The Tribulation Period
In the days of #Noah, #God poured out His judgment on an unbelieving world in a great flood (Gen. 6:17). The Bible makes it clear that God is going to judge the world again in the end times; only this time the world will be judged by fire, not by water

Went to visit the renovated synagogue in #Alexandria last week, with three other Europeans and one Egyptian. However, they did not let the Egyptian in. "Egyptians are not allowed," they said at the gate #Egypt
One added, 'because of the religion', but it's not clear to me whether Christian Egyptians could enter or not. The police guards were quite friendly and apologetic about it. "Orders from high up," they excused themselves #Egypt #Alexandria
I remember attending the reopening of the synagogue at a big press event in 2020. The synagogue was a symbol of #Egypt's diversity and tolerance between world religions, the minister said in his speech, celebrating Judaism as part of Egyptian history and civilisation #Alexandria

👀💭 This is the Unfinished Obelisk of Aswan, Egypt stands 137 feet (42m) tall and weighs 1200 tons lies in the ancient quarries near #Aswan, #Egypt. This gigantic piece of rock was intended to be erected as an #obelisk, but for some reason it was left unfinished.
👀💭 The ⬜️White box shows a crack on the obelisk, 🔵Blue shows the quarrying process around the obelisk, & the 🟥Red/Pink indicates a sculpting technique before the prime finish. I theorize this #obelisk may have been a failed attempt by a #civilization thereafter. #Archaeology
👀💭 The 🔵Blue box shows the same technique pattern used to sand down & sculpt the #obelisk, while the ⚪️White box highlights a slightly different technique than the blue, you just have to close closely. The ↪️arrow indicates the difference in finished from the near by surface.
